  I have just graduated from high school and I plan to go on to a networking career.  I already have started somewhat regarding this, as I am 17 and I have A+ certification and I will be attempting to obtain CCNA by the end of next month.  My problem is this - I live in Las Vegas and I am not sure of the institution of my choice is a good choice.  I am thinking of attending ITT Technical Institute and getting an associates degree in Networking.  However, I need to know whether how this school is looked upon by IT employers.  I do not want to go to this school if employers consider it subpar because it would put me at a disadvantage.  If you know ANYTHING regarding this school and how employers look upon it, please respond, it is very important.  Thank you....Also, if you have any recommendations for a school nearby Las Vegas, make them as well.  Thanks a lot!

The ITT school is a good program. I would still get a MCSE+CCNA.

The best thing is to buy some cheap boxs @ routers so you totally understand what your going to run up against. Don't leave out Unix, WINx, Mac OS's. You will see these in your everyday life.

I still find it funny that MS has dropped the TCP/IP from the requirements. A full understanding of TCP/IP will help you down the road.
